Canterbury Christian School prepares students to confidently respond to Christ’s call on their lives.

Our Academic Programs

Your four-year-old child can learn to read and write independently! Children have fun while learning the essentials—reading, writing, and numbers—and so much more!

Our advanced phonics-based curriculum embraces academic excellence from a Christian perspective. Our full-day includes recitations, cursive handwriting, poetry, drama, art, and music.

Nurture your child’s academic abilities, sense of citizenship, and thinking skills as he experiences an environment that fosters Christian character and an enthusiasm for learning.

Expose your child to the best of classical education activities. Students enjoy Latin, Hand Bells, Choir, Mandarin, Art, Drama, Creative Writing, Math Clubs, and more!

Our School Song

“I sing a song of the saints of God” by  Lesbia Scott (1929, GRAND ISLE)

FOUNDED 1974

Founded by the Rev. Milbank, Canterbury as a ministry of Saint Paul's Anglican Church, Canterbury Christian School continues to provide a faithful, biblical education.

DAILY CHAPEL

Canterbury students are enriched with daily Bible chapel services, where the fundamentals of the faith are reinforced with hymn singing.

LOCATION: LOS ALTOS, CA

Our campus continues to serve students from Cupertino, Los Altos, Menlo Park, Milpitas, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Saratoga, San Jose, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale.

  • A phonetic approach to teaching children to read has been our priority at Canterbury since Day 1. 
While many schools have experimented and even lowered standards, Canterbury has remained committed to raising the standard since 1974.
